FROM PORTLAND: I HEARD THIS DURING HOT YOGA
I’m in a hot yoga bootcamp and the teacher is making us stay in a plank pose for longer than anyone ever should and I want to scream, and yell, and drop to the mat and then she says,
“Look forward. The ground isn’t going anywhere, I promise.”
And I don’t know if it was because the room was heated to 98 degrees, or if I was sweating out too much of my sanity, but that sentence was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever heard a person say about how we should approach life and carry on when we just want to collapse.
